Hrm. I said I was

Hrm. I said I was going to write more about Titus, didn’t I? Well, let me get out of most of it by referring you to the comments of others. Ignore the negative ones, as they were written by halfwits that cried at Spice World. If you are a Peter Greenaway fan, you are doubly obligated to see this movie. Julie Taymor’s carefully staged visuals are as beautiful as anything seen in The Pillow Book or Baby of Macon. She picks and chooses from the language of film, and uses each tidbit to great advantage. There are places where I thought at first she was being hackneyed or tacky…then I caught the layer of meaning she was adding by using just that technique. Amazing.

Uh oh, I’ve gone and rambled, haven’t I?
